ive run a lot of cattle on fescue,but it does have a few problems.first while it survives drought well once established,it take a lot of water to get established around here.mostly its grown in the eastern side of the state with way more rainfall. second and sometimes a real problem ,it crowds out native grasses alot of times.third and why a lot of folks dont like it,it has a tendency to lay down and form a dense thatch.youve got to either graze it pretty well off,or go in and work it with a cultivator or something every three or four years to keep it upright and growing. if your cutting a placefor hay two or three times a year it does ok,and you can stretch your reworking times way out. IN MY experience with it,cattle will eat all the native grasses or clovers out first,so you eventually lose them.Like i say ive used lot of it and for a time it was my main hay crop,but it does have problems.one MAJOR thing i didnt like was very few wildlife spiecies use it,quail and ground nesting birds wont use it,simply because they cant move through it.same with rabbits .folks have told me its toxic to deer,but i cant verify that,but i do know i dont see them on it much other than passing through. it does however if left to thatch make a perfect place for rats and rodents,so dont plant it close to your house or barns,unless you can maintain it.MY opinion of course.
